How is it that they can pay guards to keep people out but they can't pay those same guards to act as security so the monument can remain open?

the government wants to use the shutdown to sabotage republican chances at the next election, so they're ordering guards to make things "as difficult as possible" for everyone. its basically just "QUICK! WE CAN BLAME REPUBLICANS! ACT LIKE a**HOLES!"

for political parties, winning the next election will ALWAYS be more important than serving the people and running the country properly.
